Allagash Fox Leap 2020
Foxes are known to enjoy fresh cherries—as do our brewers. We take nearly two years to make each batch of this blend of wild ale: one part we age for twelve months in bourbon barrels and the other we sour in a stainless steel tank for eighteen months. After blending, we age it on 3,250 pounds of local balaton and montmorency cherries for an additional four months. The prize: a sour beer filled with fresh notes of tart cherry, malty undertones, and balanced sourness. Take the leap into this bounty of cherry goodness.
Style: Bourbon Barrel Aged Cherry Ale
